Remember the guy who's hiding out in the woods to escape flesh-eating robots and other scary stuff that doesn't actually exist? Well, it seems Alex Jones isn't averse to the idea of bugging out, either.
Despite all his talk about not fearing death at the hands of the elite scum who threaten him continuously, despite all his rhetoric about the Spirit of '76, despite his avowed uberpatriotism, Jones isn't above fleeing his country if the sh** gets too heavy. One of his guests today was Mike Adams the Health Ranger, an advertiser who fled the U.S. for Ecuador. He and fellow expats were concerned about the H1N1 vaccine, the food supply, the economy, and U.S. fascism. So, he moved to a country plagued by poverty, disease, and kidnapping, without clean drinking water. Good thinkin', Mike. You'll be safe there.
Jones said he, too, has looked around for places to flee with his family.
Here are Mike Adam's "10 Swine Flu Lies Told by the Mainstream Media":
1. There are no adjuvants in H1N1 vaccine.
This is quite tricky of Mr. Adams. You see, there are adjuvants in H1N1 vaccine. But not in the doses being distributed in the U.S. So by saying "there are adjuvants in the vaccine!", you're not exactly being dishonest, because European countries have been using WHO-approved adjuvants like squalene for years - with good results.
Incidentally, I couldn't find any support for Adams' contention that squalene causes infertility. I'll be posting on squalene soon, since it has become one of the biggest boogeymen in the H1N1 vaccine hysteria propagated by Jones & Co.
2. Swine Flu is more dangerous than seasonal flu.
I've had both this year. The Swine Flu was worse, and if I had a pre-existing health problem like asthma, I might have been one of the many people confined to hospital and placed on oxygen because of H1N1. While it's true that seasonal flus result in approximately 20,000 U.S. deaths per year, H1N1 is severely affecting young people that the seasonal flus barely bother. It's not the Black Death, but it's serious stuff.
3. Vaccines protect you from Swine Flu.
Yes, Mr. Adams, the purpose of the H1N1 vaccine is to prevent H1N1. Will it work? We don't know. But inoculation is a better bet than crossing your fingers and glugging colloidal silver until you turn blue.
4. Vaccines are safe.
For the most part, they are. While Adams insists that no one has proven they're safe, he doesn't mention that no one has proven they're not.
5. The vaccine isn't mandatory.
For the average American, it isn't. But health workers and some teachers are being asked to take the shot for the safety of their charges, and their refusal could put those people entrusted to their care at risk.
6. Getting a vaccine is a good bet on your health.
Usually. It's a better bet than standing in the sun without sunscreen because sunscreen causes cancer, cutting your open wounds in lieu of getting tetanus shots, avoiding fluoride because you think it will render you sterile, or any of the other ludicrous health measures Jones has recommended.
7. The vaccine isn't made with weakened live virus.
This is just flat-out wrong. I know of no mainstream media outlet that claims flu vaccines aren't made with weakened live virus, because that is how they're made and everyone with any knowledge of vaccination knows it. The vaccine wouldn't be effective otherwise. It's nothing to be scared of.
8. Washing your hands will help you avoid exposure.
Again, Mr. Adams is being tricky here. No one is saying that hand-washing reduces exposure; it reduces transmission.
9. Children are more vulnerable to Swine Flu than adults.
Generally, children are more susceptible to flus and other infectious disease than adults. It's not a lie. Anyone with a kindergarten-age child knows that if there's something going around, your child stands a really good chance of catching it and bringing it home to the rest of the family.
10. There is nothing else you can do beyond a vaccine and Tamiflu.
Again, nobody in mainstream media is saying this. Adams already mentioned hand-washing, so what the hell is he trying to pull, here? No one denies that good old-fashioned immunity-boosting and prevention are wise, and news stories have been chock-full of advice on how to stay healthy by exercising, taking vitamins if necessary, eating properly, etc.
